    http://www.outsidethebeltway.com/archives/2007/10/philadelphia_americas_ugliest_city/ I have to agree with the survey and article because this city is full of ugly looking people. The gay scene is one of the most beat there is. LOL

    Other than for it's historical history. I've knowen little about this city.

    But I have been told it's:
    violent,
    Dirty,

    Full of black people; not that I care about that. But I find the history of how many got to be there originally, entriging.

    A good place to miss.

    That Travel & Leisure survey this supposed "fact" is based on is flawed in the extreme. Right behind Philly in the "ugly" sweepstakes were Washington DC and Dallas. I live in the latter and, say what you want about the place, there are a ton of good-looking people here.

    Sure, Philly has its problems (what big American city doesn't?)but it's full of history, great architecture, good museums, and interesting neighborhoods.

    These "best cities" lists are good for a laugh but not much stock should be put into them. They're entirely subjective and few readers/respondents have been to each city on the list and know it well enough to make comparisons. They might know the airport, the hotel/convention center, a couple of restaurants/tourist spots and that's it.

    Of course, Miami was deemed to have the most attractive people. And that I won't argue withicon_biggrin.gif

    OP, have some pride in the city in which you currently live! I am thinking you either hang out in the wrong places or go to the wrong bars, because I see plenty of good looking people around.

    Any city where you can see all those incredible Thomas Eakins' is OK in my book. And Philly has a great small theater scene.

    Philly is 43.22% black and 45.02 percent white. So doesn't that mean it's full of WHITE people then...just like every other city. Boy there are just so many things wrong with the statement that you made.

    I have been told that it's: violent, dirty, and full of black people?

    Wow. Who the hell do you associate yourself with?

    YO PATTISON:

    This might be a good time for you to try-out the "delete post" feature re: your idiot statement.

    I say this with brotherly love! icon_biggrin.gif

    I love Philadelphia. I've always had a great time there - and it has a world-class art museum.

    I'm not going to try to pull facts from my ass, but I was born and raised in Philly and I think a lot of the statements made here are SO false.

    I have amazing friends and amazing memories of philly. I think a city is whatever you make it. There are people who live in NYC, a city I think is also amazing, and hate their lives.

    I dont have a problem finding a hot date, so I can't make a statement about the ugliness factor.

    I agree with chicgymgeek... daniel... is a prime example of the hotties in philly.

    I was born 'n raised in the philly burbs. so the people of the "city of brotherly love" have a place in my heart.

    these surveys are bogus. who the heck are they talking to -- supermodels? blind buffoons? open your eyes. take a look around at the people and the architecture.

    the same survey also placed orlando toward the bottom. I guess they surveyed the unnattractive tourists at the theme parks who only see each other.

    People keep talking about the great architecture. Fuck that! I have been living here for awhile and I never doubted anything else in the city except for its people. Basically, if I want to hang out with some cool people I find myself in 30th st station waiting to go to Penn station in NYC. The gay bars here suck though. I fucking detest drag queens so I usually stay at bay. Yeah, I do know a few people that live in NYC that hate their lives but they are assholes anyway. Other then the Phillies and the Flyers letting me down every year and school I wonder why I stay here. Oh well, it never said everyone in the city is ugly it's more like 98.8% lol.

    82. Are you crazy? Phoenix sucks. I have been to many major US cities and have determined I would have to stay on the east coast. Every big city will have its flaws but it's best to find the one that has the least.

    oh eckm85, i don't know where you are going out, but I RARELY ever see drag queens in philly.... i see them more in baltimore and DC than in philly.

    I mean, I like them though! lol. I can never see myself doing drag, but I have to give props to the guys out there that have the balls to do it!

    These rankings are RIDICULOUS. How do you scientifically quantify which city has the ugliest people? Isn't physical attractiveness subjective in the first place?

    As for Dallas, I don't get that one either - Dallas has some of the well dressed, attractive, and vanity-obsessed people in the country.

    danielryan: Yeah, I hear what you are saying live and let live. I mean if it wasn't for most of those guys in dresses there wouldn't be all the gay rights there is today and all the progress there has been made towards acceptance. I just don't like them fondling my ass and acting like d-bags when I go out. I honestly haven't been out anywhere really in months (here) 'cause it just blows to me.

    The article talks about ugly as a whole. ...and if you think a rude, 40 year old, overweight, wearing a visor, riding a scooter, while eating McDonalds, human is attractive then you'd love it here.
